"Those Who Live in Glass Houses Shouldn't Throw Stones"
The actions of their father don't overshadow their accomplishments. The Kennedy's we're raised moral, educated, traditional.
To believe other politicians/leaders/wise men etc haven't sinned by adultery is extremely naive.
JFK and his brother RFK, literally choose a course for humanity alongside with Khrushchev by not going to apocalyptic nuclear war. While generals and politicians on both sides we're screaming for the nukes to be launched.
The fact that kids laugh and joke about nukes today shows the importance of their achievement. Unless your a complete moron you cannot understate the importance of the fact we avoided Nuclear catastrophe between two powerful nations who could and would have destroyed this planet for their conquest of empire, which Jack put his fist down and stopped.
..Those Who Live in Glass Houses Shouldn't Throw Stones, well I guess the Bush family needs to build a new mansion. With Prescott's ties to Nazi banking, Herbert Walker and Dubya's allegiance to Skull and Bones, Bohemian grove weirdo, military-industrial-complex blowjob giving evil scumbags that they are.

Today with the help of the RICCO act the influence of organized crime has been greatly diminished over what it was in 1960 when JFK took office. Sadly, the same cannot be said for the influence of big business (particularly the military-industrial-congressional complex) mob
While this is a pretty good roasting of LBJ and all his connections, it does history a disservice
by not going into greater detail about the Kennedy family connection to the Mafia
Neither is there any mention of the fact that since Old man Kennedy was worth hundreds of millions of dollars that he could bank roll his son's run for the White House without requiring Jack to grab his ankles and "assume the position" before business interests the way Lyndon Johnson had to do.
Starting with rum-running during prohibition (which required pay-offs and coordination with the organized crime mobs) and continuing with Hollywood movie production, (also requiring pay- offs to orgnized crime) Joseph Kennedy was up to his ears with crime family associations.
Why else could he have been granted the favor of Sam Giancanna's help in stuffing ballot boxes in Chicago in order to throw Illinois to the Kennedy-Johnson ticket and thereby gaurantee their winning over Nixon? Why or how else would Jack first cast his eyes on Judith Campbell who was part of the Giancana harem and live to tell about his indescretions with her?
Ol' Sam didn't mind sharing women or doing a favor for an old family friend's son, but he always demanded a quid-pro-quo and failure to provide such could be deadly.
Bobby's prosecution of the mob stirring up J Edqueer Hoover with fear of his "secret" being exposed by criminals in the know put the bullets in Jack's head as surely as the hit team that performed the act did.
Bobby's appointment to Attorney General was also done in order for him to keep the lid on the growing number of sexual indescretions of big brother Jack with regard to women.
Though Bobby may have been a devoted organized-crime fighter, he was also an impudent, arrogant, horses ass of a person whose brashness was tolerated only because of his relationship to the sitting President.
Lyndon and other big business criminals had good reason to despise the Kennedys. Both Bobby and Jack were born on third base and acted like they hit a home run. Both were cutting in on their profits, and both didn't much care if the y liked it or not.
Jack was not nearly as intelligent as many of his public statements made him appear, but he at least had the good sense to have wise advisors like Arthur Schlessinger Jr, and Theodore Sorenson to school him in what he really did not know.
All of that being said, it is important to realize that the question of "Who killed JFK?" is less important than the question of "What killed JFK?".
The answer to that latter question was arrogance towards and ignorance of the true nature of what (the military-industrial-security-congressional complex) as well as with whom (organized crime bosses, J Edgar Hoover's FBI, the Secret Service, and the biggest bag man of all Lyndon Johnson he was dealing.
In the musical, "Man of La Mancha", at the end as Don Quiote dies, his heart-throb Aldonza the whore, assumes the role of his idealized woman Dulcinea out of respect for Quixote and his chivalrous gallantry towards her as Aldonza.
For both Jack Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson, the Aldonzas in their lives (including especially Jackie)continued on as the courtesans they had always been--this is the true tragedy of JFK and LBJ--their legacies are media-manufactured and the memory of neither lives in the hearts of anyone.
Given the thorougness of the control exerted by the perpetrators of this crime, the anonymiity of the producers of this documentary, and its continued availability for viewing, it is also worth wondering if this production's existence is both a boast and a warning by the perps of this crime to any future politicians or other leaders about who is really in charge and what they are capable of doing.
The above omissions as noted detract from an otherwise compelling and interesting documentary.
